My phone rings with a Hong Kong number and I answered with curiosity. On the other end of the line was a very sweet woman named Emily who had rang me up to talk to me about her upcoming wedding in Danang and a Pre-Wedding Photography in Hoi An.
I love it when clients do this as it really helps me understand more about the character and personalities of the couple and to find out what they are looking for.
She had asked me for my wedding packages and pre-wedding packages some time back and wanted to talk to me over the phone in more detail. Emily was all too kind and told me how much she enjoyed not only my wedding photography but also my corporate, commercial and video work. She then proceeded to tell me she worked for CNBC Hong Kong for over 10 years. As soon as she said that I knew she would be an awesome bride to shoot and was even more excited to shoot her wedding.
Emily & Yat organized to have a traditional Chinese wedding with the whole full day of events. If you have never experienced a Chinese wedding and all the traditions that come along with it, it is a great experience and I had a great time shooting it. Emily and Yat had a lot of friends fly over from all over the world and they decided to get married at Hyatt Regency Danang which is one of the only 5 star resorts in Danang that can cater to a large wedding.
The day before the wedding, I took them out for a 1/2 day pre-wedding shoot in Hoi An which are the first photos below.
